For those of you who may not be familiar with Antoine Tava’s work, he is a Montreal visual artist who is best known for his pop-culture visuals and illustrations. Around the city, you’ll spot his work on murals and in alleyways. The beauty about his artwork is that is it easily transferable to the sneaker world, and the adidas Originals’ Stan Smith, a pop-culture piece in its own right, worked as the perfect canvas.
We had the chance to take a look at Antoine Tava’s Stan Smiths at footwear retailer Browns last week and above are some images recapping the event. The music for the evening was supplied by Toddy Flores, a self-professed sneakerhead, along with bites and cocktails from Old-Port restaurant Santos.
What you’ll appreciate about the sneakers is that each pair is hand painted by the artist himself and can be decorated according to your taste.
